Washington, NC City Docks (Pamlico River)

On 7/23/09, as part of a “North Carolina Wish List,” I posed the following question:

30. Finally, cruisers can continue up Pamlico River to the very nice Washington, NC city docks (a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR). These are some of the nicest city facilities in North Carolina. Anyone who has berthed here, please share what you found. Did you find any good places to eat or places to shop in downtown Washington?

Responses follow:

Enjoyed Washington, NC. Bought a new 8D battery at West Marine and one of the employees delivered in his truck. No charge and wouldn’t accept a tip!

Washington is great.  Several restaurants. The Map Room has excellent food with a creative flair.  We were fortunate to be there on a Friday night when the town had bands of every type playing in the streets.  Nice town dock.  West Marine within walking distance.

Washington City Dock permits you to tie up for 2 days every 7 days free of charge – no power or water. Docking is $260 a month and I believe now plus power cost (which was included when I was there) There are great showers free of charge and a waterside boardwalk and park. Mimis Coffee House on the waterfront is a great place to eat fine home made soups and other specials. (Owners Mimi and Pete at one time were cruisers themselves) . The Metro (I think it’s called) serves a good old fashioned breakfast. Good Farmers Market every Saturday in summer time. All Dockmasters very friendly. Walmart / Lowes / Office Depot et al are a $5 taxi ride away. West Marine is within walking distance
